Thank you for joining us and reading our weekly Serenity Sol Massage Blog. Our weekly Blog is a recap of our monthly newsletter, and various updates that happened within the past week. I remember going to grade school and learning how to spell through repetition. It would take an entire week to practice and perfect new spelling lists. It was a method that worked well. At Serenity Sol Massage, we believe in repetition as well. When we post our monthly newsletter tips and recipes; we recap via weekly blogging to give our readers time to take it in, put it to practice, and form an honest opinion about how our ideas worked for them.
In light of our new service, AromaTouch, we thought it only fitting that we discuss the benefits of aromatherapy as a stress reliever. Here's a recap of the article in our February Newsletter.
Relax, Relate, Release with Aromatherapy
The hectic routines and schedules often gives you a lot stress and at the end of day. No matter how much rest you get, you still often feel tired, anxious, and sometimes overwhelmed. On some occasions, you may experience the opposite affect and begin to suffer from sleep-onset insomnia, which can often be worse. Many people might turn to sleeping pills, wine, or over-the-counter drugs. Remedies such as these are only temporary and do not get to the root of the problem. Instead, you may try alternative therapies such as aromatherapy and simple lifestyle changes. We have suggested below some tips that may help you relax and unwind.
The biggest benefit of aromatherapy is stress reduction. If you’re suffering from more than usual stress, then aromatherapy is the perfect solution for this problem. Aromatherapy can reduce stress using the following methods: holistically, clinically, and aesthetically. Each method varies, however, they all use essential oils to bring peace and tranquility.
Holistic aromatherapy benefits your various senses with touch, sound, and smell. A massage using essential oils and soothing sounds puts your body in a relaxed state. During your massage, you become in tune with the healing touch to your body while you focus on the soothing sound. Your sense of smell is infused with the essential oil, allowing your body to go in a state of relaxation. Your stress begins to lift and your conscientious mind goes into a tranquil state of being at one with your entire self. Serenity Sol Massage in Torrance offers one of the best holistic aromatherapy experiences available in the area with our doTerra AromaTouch Therapy.
Clinical aromatherapy is used in conjunction with traditional medicine. This form of therapy may vary greatly from country to country. One way that it is used in the United States is with dentistry. The scent of lavender used in waiting rooms has been shown to help reduce stress prior to dental treatments. It has also been used to provide quick relief to those who are suffering from major diseases, serious illness, or childbirth by helping to provide a relaxing atmosphere.
Aesthetic aromatherapy is the use of essential oils in burners; such as those offered at Serenity Sol Massage. The use of essential oils in diffusers and in the bath add to the relaxing experience. Many candles also contain essential oils. Aesthetic aromatherapy is a popular method by many as it’s something everyone can do from the comfort of their home. Whether using candles or oil burners infused with essential oils; they both produce the soothing affects to lift stress. For an even more relaxing experience, try combining the candles with essential oils in a relaxing bath. You’ll feel relaxed and pampered, while your senses feel delightful.

Remember, though you’ll feel relaxed from the very first session, repeating the process helps you get to the root of the problem and treat the stress.
